Beach Invitational Results | Mt. SAC Results

TORRANCE, Calif. - Senior Rianna Goins bested her previous 800 personal record by almost exactly one full second with a fifth-place time of two minutes, 5.72 seconds, highlighting Aggie action at the second day of the Mt. SAC Relays, hosted this year at El Camino College. Meanwhile, senior Michaela Mundt unleashed a throw of 58.73 meters, or 192 feet, 8 inches, in the hammer throw at Long Beach State's Beach Invitational.


Goins remains third on the school's all-time leaderboard, but he easily eclipsed her old best of 2:06.74 from the 2016 Sac State Open. Mundt improved on her No. 2 all-time outdoor mark in Aggie history, surpassing her previous PR of 57.88 meters (189-11). She closed the gap behind school record-holder Chidinma Onyewuenyi, who recorded a benchmark of 58.96m (193-5) back in 2011.


Overall, UC Davis had five top-five finishes at the two Southern California meets. Sophomore Kyle Clancy made his season debut in the high jump by finishing second with a leap of 2.10 (6-10.75). He matched the event winner, Minnesota State's Michael Sandle, but lost the tiebreaker due to two more attempts. Clancy already ranks second in school history in the event with his 2.14m (7-0.25) at last year's Mondo Invite.


Senior Danielle Steffen cleared the pole vault bar at 3.80 meters on her first attempt at that height, good for a tie for second place in the meet. Junior Holly Tokar also hit 3.80 meters on the vault for a season best and fifth place in the event. Senior Morgan Dutra added a third-place finish in the women's discus, uncorking a throw of 47.47m (155-9) in her second attempt of the meet.


Other highlights include Brian Thomas, who posted his second-best 400 of the year at 47.73, good for seventh in the field. Natsumi McGee narrowly missed her season best in the women's 100, crossing in 11.83 in the fourth heat. Kierra Davis (11.92) and Jazmen Bunch (11.97) also broke the 12-second barrier in the event. Davis later went 24.36 to lead the Aggies in the 200.


The Aggies conclude a full weekend of action on Saturday with competitors at the Mt. SAC Relays, Long Beach State's Beach Invitational and UC Davis' own Woody Wilson Classic.
